"While scientists try to learn more about how acupuncture works, increasingly robust evidence, drawn from a number of international studies, indicates that [acupuncture] does work…"

The evidence is there: Acupuncture works. While scientists continue to try to determine how acupuncture works, you, your medical department, and your patients can benefit from acupuncture service.

Acupuncture is a powerful treatment modality with very few, if any, side effects. It can be applied to almost every type of disesase in any stage of development. When it is applied to treat disease, acupuncture

  • Is a highly effective tool for managing nearly all symptoms;
  • Can greatly improve the patient's emotional and mental state;
  • Enhances the patient's healing process;
  • Can reduce the patient's utilization of medication.

In addition, not only does acupuncture complement standard medical treatment protocols, but it can also greatly improve the patient's quality of life. Finally, acupuncture does not have any negative interactions reported with any medical modalitiies while being clinically effective. In summary, adding acupuncture to your hospital’s service offering can greatly improve patient care.
